Luke warm water, 300ml
Sea salt, ½ tablespoons
Sugar, 1 tablespoon

In a bowl add flour, mother yeast, sugar, salt and water. Mix well and knead for about 10 minuteS until smooth and uniform. Shape into a ball, cover the bowl with a damp clean tea towel and let sit for about 2 hours, or until the dough has roughly doubled. Preheat oven to 375 F.
Roll the dough lightly using a rolling pin and using flour to handle. Then place into a baking tray, cover with a layer of tomato salsa and pieces of torn mozzarella. Season with a little salt, a tablespoon of EVOO and a few leaves of fresh basil. Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes, until the crust looks crispy and light brown. Finish with extra raw EVOO.
